Still crazy after all these years

I reached out, recently, to someone I knew from a Development Finance Institution (DFI). He had joined a large Private Equity fund and wanted to reconnect. His email response was shocking.  “Unfortunately it is too early for us to be active in sustainability investing as we are commercially driven on behalf of our institutional investors.”  WHAT!!!!.

What have we been saying and proving for the last 20 years. Sustainability is about business excellence and profitability. How long will it take for the obvious to sink in?
